The Westerly-Pawcatuck Veterans Board of Control (WPVBC) is observing Memorial Day on Monday, May 28, 2012 with a parade.

The main ceremonies will conclude at the bandstand (Gazebo) in Wilcox Park in Westerly, RI.
To participate in the parade, we need your reservation before and prior to April 18, 2011 so that we will be able to place your unit in the right division.
